Torchwood: Miracle Day episodes 1 & 2 Review

Torchwood is no more... Or so we though after 'Children of Earth'....

The CIA knows about the British organization and for some reason, wants the remaining members, Jack & Gwen, gone.. There is a twist to the BBC Woldwide/Stars collaboration. Headed up by the team that brought you the 'DoctorWho spin off, Miracle Day has started with a bang!

The first episode brings you up to date on the remaining members, Capt. Jack Harkess(John Barrowman) and Gwen Cooper(Eve Myles) are alive and kicking. Gwen is a mom and living with Rhys(Kai Owen) in some place isolated in Wales. A CIA worker Esther Drummond (Alexa Havins of All My Children fame) is looking into Torchwood and while talking to a friend/ Coworker Rex Mathison (Mekhi Pfifer) is involved in a deadly impaling car accident.. and survives. Suddenly, everything related to Torchwood vanishes! A child murderer/molester, played by Bill Pullman, survives lethal injection. Soon reports from all over the world are coming in about people not dying. And this is just the first episode!

Second episode continues the fast pace and something truly inhuman is going on. As most of us know, Jack is immortal due to Rose using the time vortex in The Parting of Way in DoctorWho. But during this, he is completely mortal. A new twist on the familiar. Someone is trying to eradicate the team and anyone who has pulled up their information, but why? Murder attempts, espionage, set-ups, the walking but aging , living dead.. fine stuff! Meanwhile doctors from all over the world are trying to figure out what is biologically going on.

So far, Torchwood:Miracle Day is turning out to be one help of a ride! I'm going to stay tuned.. are you?
